Re: Stuck in 1st.

They are easy enough, but the slave is in a typically annoying position. I found developing an extra elbow joint helped immensely. :lol:

Re: Stuck in 1st.

Presumably you have sorted this, but to get it towable, put the transfer case into neutral :wink:

Re: Restoration

Mine are also not parabolic. They are 10 leaf springs, two as helpers. They have no maker stamped on them and I don't know who did.

Re: Restoration

Not certain. I ordered them through our local Landie spare parts dealer. I think they may be Rocky Mountain, :?:

Re: Restoration

TBH, I don't there is an easy way to get a Salisbury back into position. So many moving joints that need to be exactly lined up... Your springs are the same as my new ones. I found them to be quite soft compared with the previous standard duty springs. Not overly impressed with them, given the price...

Re: Restoration

Do you think the oil on the galv will give it long lasting protection? I've had good results with both waxoyl and lanocote grease (no the spray version, that dried off and went powdery over time).

Re: Restoration

All looks pretty good to me. My guess is that the diff will be fine, but it's good to have the feeling of settlement about it.

Re: Restoration

Like the LT95, they were a good decision on the trucks.

For a long time, I desired having an electric rear diff locker installed into mine. Now I'm glad I didn't mess with it.

Re: Restoration

:lol: Sorry, I thought you had wheels on it. okaaay then. Can you afford to hire a little digger or fork lift for a morning? Maybe some local Landie nut who has one who could help out? A one ton digger with no bucket would easily lift it out, walk it backwards and plonk the tub on the ground :idea: ...

Re: Restoration

Put the tub on drums, etc. and suspended by the boards. If the tub is pointing to the back of the shed (engine to the front), can you roll the chassis assembly forward? This will leave the tub in the air and then stick a dolly under it for moving around. Or a trailer if one is handy. If the tub is t...

Re: Restoration

Yes, the rear end was obviously designed for assembly and not maintenance. The position of the rear fuel tank also makes removal of stuck chassis spring bushings something to pause about. So far as removal is concerned, I think I would get some drums or items similarly stable and use a jack to lift ...
